until i have confidence that u.s. taxpayer money is not being abused to line the pockets of corrupt afghan government officials, g drug lords and terrorists. can you respond, first of all, to the allegation that people with political connections are getting off? >> that's not true. we have prosecuted a number of high ranking officials in the afghan government. that process will continue. every government official, high ranking official is now required to -- there's a lot of misinformation. for instance, that report by nita lowey tt came out was related to the flow of cash out of kabul airport. the fact is that out of the $19.6 million that the united states is giving to afghanistan in the past three years, only $1 billi billion, 5% of the money has been given to the afghan government. there is waste. there is corruption. but a lot of it has nothing to do with the afghan government. it is the -- >> what's worrisome, i think, to congress, to americans, is that it's not, oh, there's corruption in government. because governments do have their corruption parts. it's that the president

, including u.s. troops overseas. as we reported yesterday, vice president joe biden has made a surprise visit to the american forces in iraq. biden is there working to end a political stalemate ahead of the planned withdrawal of u.s. combat forces. andrea mitchell is traveling with the vice president. good morning. >> reporter: alex, good morning. happy fourth of july to you from baghdad, where vice president joe biden and his wife, jill, are naturalizing 153 u.s. troops who are becoming u.s. citizens today. what better day to do it than on july 4th. also a serious mission here, political and diplomatic. the vice president is trying to push the iraqis all of the factions that have been arguing since election four months ago, trying to push them toward a permanent government. the importance of that is that the u.s. combat mission is scheduled to end on august 31st. and a troop draw-down of u.s. forces to 50,000. currently it's 82,000. still, optimistic, the vice president says that everything is proceeding on that timetable. officials traveling with him say that the combat mission will be turn

illegal immigration. the u.s. justice department has, indeed, filed a lawsuit that challenges the state of arizona's tough new immigration law. the measure set to go into effect later this month. the law requires local police to question possible illegal immigrants and also makes it a crime for legal immigrants not to carry their documents. the obama administration argues federal law trumps the state law. the president himself called this plan misguided and one senior justice department official said today that allowing it opens the door for a patchwork of immigration laws across the country. we think that is untenable. but supporters say they need this law because they claim the feds haven't done enough to stop illegal immigration. the arizona governor jan brewer who signed this bill into law released a statement that reads, in part, today's filing is nothing more than a massive waste of taxpayer funds. these funds could be better used against the violent mexican cartels than the people of arizona. anita vogel on fox top story in our northwest newsroom. strong reaction from arizona law
to these documents as being rather low level classified information that any number of u.s. service members could have access to, but it's obviously something that the pentagon is quite concerned about, that this has now been made public for people all over the world to see, shannon. shannon: with that in mind, mike, what are we hearing from wickileaks about this massive release of classified information, any hint that we should expect more to come? >> reporter: the founder did say, shannon, they have about 15,000 other documents that they have not yet released and he predicted that there would be more leaks to come as well. so all indications are that he is waiting for the right opportunity to get maximum media exposure. it's quite clear that this guy is clearly antiwar and trying to undermine support for the war and a lot of the key countries' contributing troops to the afghan effort. here's more from the wickileaks founder earlier today. >> the coverup, all sorts of crimes, begins at the bottom and moves its way to the top so it is quite hard to enact a new policy and have it filtered down to
